MEXC, a leading Singapore-based cryptocurrency trading platform, has unveiled a $20 million fund aimed at supporting projects on Layer 1 blockchain Sei Network.
In a blog post published on 4 January, MEXC said the fund will be geared towards boosting adoption across the Sei Network ecosystem.
The platform, which is designed with the need to maximise trading advantages for decentralised exchanges (DEXs) users, is developed by Sei Labs – a team that counts former Robinhood developers, Cosmos OGs and ex-Goldman Sachs finance and strategy members.
Sei Network to support 20 dApps ahead of mainnet launch
Sei Network raised $5 million in August, backed by industry players and other investors including Coinbase Ventures, Multicoin Capital, Delphi Digital and Hudson River Trading. The platform plans to use the new capital injection to support network development as it moves closer to its mainnet launch.
The team will also back 20 decentralised applications (dApps) that are already building on the network.
MEXC is launching the ecosystem fund through its MEXC Ventures, a comprehensive fund that looks to empower innovations within the crypto space via strategic investments. The firm also focuses on M&As project incubation and multi-manager investments.
MEXC Ventures currently holds over $100 million in assets under management and more than 300 portfolio investments.
